The bathroom is an essential space in any home and it is important to keep it beautiful and functional. Whether you’re looking to update your current or renovate an older one, there are many ways to make it more appealing and relaxing space. In this article, we’ll explore three ways to make your bathroom more versatile.

 

1. Bathroom Stool

                                                                                                       Margo Stool without Shelf

 

Choose a stool that complements your bathroom’s decor, whether that be a sleek and modern stool for a contemporary theme or a wooden stool for a more traditional space. A stool can also be used to add a pop of colour or texture, serving as a functional accent piece in the room.

When placing your stool, consider its intended use and make sure it is easily accessible. For example, if you’re using a stool to hold towels or other items, place it near the shower or bathtub. If you’re using the stool for getting ready, place it near the sink or vanity.

In conclusion, adding a stool can greatly increase its versatility and functionality, while also serving as a stylish accent piece. With a wide range of sizes, styles, and materials available, it’s easy to find a stool that will suit your bathroom and your personal style. Whether you’re using it for practical purposes or as a decorative element, a stool can be a valuable addition to your bathroom.

Adding a bathroom tray to your space can greatly increase its versatility and functionality. A tray can serve as a surface to hold and organize your daily essentials, such as soap, toothbrush, and cosmetics, making it easier to find what you need when you need it.

When choosing a tray, consider the size and style of the space. A small, decorative tray can be a stylish addition to a petite powder room, while a larger, more utilitarian tray may be better suited for a larger bathroom with more storage needs. Consider the material of the tray as well, as options like glass, metal, or wood can add different textures and styles to your bathroom. In addition to its practical uses, a tray can also add an aesthetic element to your bathroom

 

When placing your tray in the bathroom, consider its intended use and make sure it is easily accessible. For example, if you’re using the tray to hold daily essentials, place it near the sink or countertop. If you’re using the tray to hold decorative items, such as candles or flowers, place it on a shelf or near the bathtub.

 

3. High-quality Teak Shelves

Adding shelves can greatly increase its storage capacity and organization. Teak shelves provide an efficient and accessible solution for storing items such as towels, toiletries, and grooming products, keeping your space clutter-free and organized.

 

When choosing shelves, consider the size and style of the space. For smaller bathrooms, wall-mounted shelves can help maximize floor space and offer storage without taking up too much room. For larger ones, freestanding shelves or built-in shelving can provide ample storage and a decorative touch. Consider the material of the shelves as well, as options like glass, metal, or wood can add different textures and styles to your bathroom.

 

When placing your shelves, consider their intended use and make sure they are easily accessible. For example, if you’re using the shelves to hold towels, place them near the shower or bathtub. If you’re using the shelves to hold grooming products, place them near the sink or vanity.

                                                                                                                   Classic Bar Chair

 

Ever thought of staying back and have a romantic dinner at home with your partner? Share a couple of drinks maybe? You can have your own bar setup at home easily.

 

What makes a bar set different from a regular dining set? The height. That’s right, you need to choose the bar set with counter height, as if how you will see at an actual bar. If you like to throw a party at home, chances are you will be moving your bar chair or table. The teak wood-made bar set is your choice for durability. It is water-resistant and easy to maintain.  Guests can also easily carry and rearrange the bar chair as they like – now all can enjoy a bonfire together while sitting next to their favourite people.

 

2. Single Seat Sofa

If you are a person who likes to spend time mostly outdoors, after a tiring day, then you must set up a sofa in your backyard, garden, pool or patio.

 

It is essential that you pick a material that will be dust, rough, weather, and water-resistant. Single seater sofa made of teak wood is a good choice for its low maintenance and high durability, especially with the ones with a high natural oil finish.

 

3. Bench as your patio furniture

                                                                                                           Classic Backless Bench

 

Love to chill with your friends at the back of your house? Consider adding a bench for your setup. A wooden bench made with teak is usually good for outdoor, as it’s durable to hold up a good amount of weight – you can fit as many people on one bench. You can also choose to have a bench with an arm or backrest. If you have small space, it’s best to go with the one without a back and armrest, as it only takes up minimal space. Stainless steel as the base is another choice, as it gives a different look and feels to your patio.

4. Lounger

                                                                                                                 Rivera Flat Lounger

 

Whether you are organizing a party with peeps or looking for relaxation, a sun lounger daybed can be the best idea for a piece of patio furniture to complement your porch or poolside.

 

Choose teak wood material for your choice of sunbathing chair, because the lounge chair is going to be placed either under the sun or by the pool. So the materials for your lounger need to be weather resistant – both water and direct sunlight. In addition, your cushion has to be water and odour-resistant material such as sunbrella – it is resistant to drizzling; even if it gets wet, it will dry out within an hour or so. However, it’s recommended to keep it indoors while raining.

 

The adjustable lounger can be considered as well for your greater comfort – you can lay down entirely to get yourself a good tanning session, or lift up to enjoy reading the newspaper or your favourite cocktails.

 

5. Outdoor Parasol

Sometimes too much of a good thing can be harmful – specifically vitamin D. You don’t want to stay under the sun for too long, so having a parasol for your backyard can shelter you from the excessive amounts of UV rays.

Position it well right where you will be staying long – next to your sunbathing lounge chair or right above your dining table. Some of the loungers even come with a sunshade attached.

 

Choose Batyline sling – a weather-resistant fabric that is almost impossible to tear, a common material used for outdoor environments. The fabric-like material creates canvas flexibility, while protecting you from direct exposure to the sun. It’s resistant to water as well. This lightweight material will make your life easy when it comes to assembly and installation. Choosing a solid base to complement your parasol is just about as crucial – select heavy-duty material just as top grade #304 stainless steel to ensure its functionality, especially by the beach, where the wind can swipe up everything.

 

We have listed out the 5 most important pieces of patio furniture you can add to your garden, what do you think? Comment below if you have a better idea! We are glad to know more from you. 🙂

4 Helpful Tips To Protect Your Outdoor Furniture From Rust

image1

Metal-made outdoor furniture is commonly used for the outdoors. It is exquisite and alluring, and it upgrades the atmosphere of the patio. Metal furniture is tough with significant support – generally, it stands up well to climate changes and limits, so it requires no stress over the presentation of the components. In any case, metal is prone to rust, and this is one of the issues for your metal furniture.

 

Warmth and salty water also quicken the advancement of rust. In the event that one thing can ruin the magnificence of your metal patio furniture, it is rust. Fortunately, there are measures you can take to anticipate rusting. Following are valuable tips on counteractive action to rust.

 

1. Keep your Outdoor Furniture Dry And Clean

Whenever water or dampness sets on the metal furniture of your patio, it encourages the way toward rusting. Furniture made from metal has more excellent resistance to water impacts than other materials like wicker or wooden furniture. It is good to keep it dry as much as possible. If water remains on the furniture surface for a long period of time, this will encourage rust to settle in. It is always good practice to mop off any water with the assistance of a delicate cloth.

2. Wax Protects from Rust

A glue wax gives magnificent assurance from rusting on account of its waterproof capability. It also helps in keeping up the splendid aspect of your outdoor living furniture. Before applying any wax, it is necessary for you to keep the furniture clean. You need to hold up until the furniture is totally dry, before applying glue wax. Use a paintbrush to apply the wax on the surface of the furniture; be sure to reach the outreach places like splits and holes as it is important to wax each and every part. A small part unattended can lead the whole piece of furniture to ruination.

 

What about the painted furniture? If you have colourful lounges set up on your patio or garden, you can make a quick restoration by applying rust-proof paint with matching colours on them. Not only splashing a new layer of paint with rust proof gives new look, but also revives them with another shading and an extra layer of shield. Most importantly, keep them under observation more frequently and take action when needed.

3. Provide Adequate Cover

When you have finished applying the glue wax, permit adequate time to dry out properly before moving it to the next step – upholstery.

 

Keeping your furniture all warm and covered with a softly padded textile covers gives your furniture an astounding look and provides necessary security from harsh components like fog, dust, and the sun. Utilize pads, seat backs, and arm covers on your metal patio seats to decrease the presentation of dampness and warmth, which limits the rate of rust. Even furniture with glass tops like coffee or dining table is a good way to keep out of the UV rays by letting them through.

Metal furniture is viewed as rigid and can remain outside for longer periods. Nonetheless, it is a good habit to keep and protect your furniture with care, particularly when it is not being used. When winter knocks at your door, you do not sit outside for the fear of catching a chill in your bones. Therefore, providing shelter for this unused patio furniture and putting them under a shed or secured zone area, will protect them from the harsh components and weather. You can as well get a custom-made furniture cover, which is weather-resistant, to cover your outdoor furniture throughout these periods.

 

If you take a glance at the garden of almost every home and some places like the trees, bushes, and grass, you will undoubtedly discover metal – grill flame broils, handrails and fences are just a portion of the metal highlight the spaces outside of your patio entryways. On account of metal’s merited behaviour for durability, we don’t frequently consider the material’s upkeep necessities.

 

However, if the matter is about to rust, then it leads to the part of facing the mortal enemy. Homeowners must guarantee that their metal belongings like iron, aluminium, or steel, continue looking and playing out their absolute best and conceive a long-lasting period of life.

4 Things to Consider to Choose Lounger For Your Outdoor Patio

image1 3

image1 3

 

Whether you are planning to enjoy a cup of cocktail or get a nice sun tanning session on your patio, getting a lounger can be a quick getaway from work; needless to spend money and time travelling overseas. 

 

Besides, it has been proven that we will be healthier if we are surrounded by fresh air. This helps to keep our mental and physical strength and also boosts our daily productivity. Thus, you need two things to achieve this, first, choose a place where you can get a nice view of the sunset, and second the most important thing is, to get yourself an outdoor lounger.

 

image4 3

                                                                                                       Gazelig Lounger no Arms

 

If this is your first time buying a lounger for your patio, this can be thought of as it is not everyone’s must-have furniture. In addition, people tend to use a regular chair for this purpose unknowingly not only it is not the proper furniture, but also the natural elements can quickly tear down the furniture. Therefore, we have come out with a quick and easy buyer’s guide on how to choose a lounger for your outdoor patio below, and break it down into 4 things that you should consider before buying –

 

1. Lounger Portability 

image6 1

                                                                                                          Rivera Flat Lounger

 

Chasing the shade is no longer the thing you do while you are a little kid; if you are not planning to get a parasol to provide you with some shade, you might need to move it as the sun moves. The same goes for chasing the sun for tanning, you will need to find yourself a good spot with an adequate amount of sunlight.

 

Therefore, having the option to move your it around is an important buying concern. Some loungers come with two rubber wheels on one end, and you can lift it up and it is ready to roll to your desired destination. Whereas some come with no wheels but fixed legs, and these are more suitable for you if portability is not your concern. Despite the reasons above, it is best to avoid natural elements as much as possible, especially if it is padded with cushions, in which you might want to keep it away from the rain. However, the lesser the moving parts, the longer it lasts – understand your need and spend your money wisely!

 

2. Adjustability

                                                                                                                Siro Lounger

 

Having the option to transform your lounger into a daybed can be a good bonus. Sometimes you need tanning, you lay completely flat and enjoy the session; whereas other times you just want to spend your evening reading books, while catching some fresh air and ideas – either one requires different back angles.

 

Sun tanning bed with adjustable back is quite common as the demand for versatility is trendy. Some of them even come with an ergonomic design to fit your back comfortably,  suitable for those who don’t prefer a flat back. 

 

3. Padded Or Non-Padded

                                                                                                   Gazelig Loungers with Arms

 

If you prefer soft and cushioned support, then padding it with a cushion is a must. Since it is for the patio, you have to make sure that the cushion has a weather-resistant feature or the cushion will be torn apart in no time.

 

The padded lounger has both pros and cons. If it is placed next to a swimming pool, in which condition you will most likely sit on the lounger right after some swimming, and the cushion can become nasty as it contacts with water – you might want to leave it without padding in this case. Although we have mentioned getting the cushion with weather resistant option, it is best to keep the cushion away from natural elements like rain and direct sunlight as much as possible, in order to maintain its best shape and quality in the long run.

 

If you wish to have both soft back support and ease of care, you can opt for Batyline-made lounger, which gives flexible support with no padding.

4. Materials Made for Outdoor

                                                                                                                    Snix Lounger

 

The most vital one for you to consider is the material.

Going out in the morning is excellent for your mental health and to make sure you get enough vitamin D. However, getting exposed to the sun directly for long hours, especially during the afternoon will affect your skin, health and even immune system. It helps if you have a physical shade with you such as a parasol to protect you from the harsh UV rays. Research has also proven that excessive amounts of ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun will have a negative impact on your health, such as severe sunburn or allergy. 

 

It is important to apply sunscreen every time you are exposed to the sun to protect your skin. However, if it is too hot say in the afternoon, you are advised to also use physical sunblocks such as a hat or an umbrella.

 You may have heard of a parasol, but you probably have no idea the difference between a parasol and an umbrella. They may look similar but it is two completely different item serving two different purposes. Unsure to get yourself a parasol or an umbrella? Let us help you! Here we will share some fun facts about these two life-saving inventions.


Material

It’s a portable and lightweight device that is made up of plastic or fabric that is stretched over a series of hinges. They are all connected to the central body, which is usually curved at the end for you to carry it with ease. When not in use, you can collapse it and transport it with you.

 

It is typically used to protect one from rain and wet weather, as well as the sun. Therefore, the fabric or the plastic is made up of waterproof material that the water will not penetrate. Nowadays the umbrella comes with some creative functions and designs, such as an extendable umbrella which can be shrunk to the size of your water bottle, or a cooling system inside the umbrella – not only does it provide shade for you, but also a breeze, how cool is that?

 

Design

If you look closely, the design of a parasol it a bit different compared to an umbrella. Umbrella is more concave looking while a parasol is straight. This is because it is mainly meant for providing shade as It is made up of thick fabric, it could be cotton or canopy fabric. Hence, it is only water-resistant and not waterproof.

 

If you like those ancient movie series, you must have seen Parasol before. It is usually used by loyal families or nobles and it is dedicated and pretty, especially in Europe. The origin of it goes back to ancient Egypt where the maids or bearers were holding parasols, which were made up of a big piece of palm leaf or feather, to shade their masters. You can hardly see anybody using it now though unless it is for wedding photography purposes.

However, you do see, probably have used another type of parasol before, which is a patio parasol. It is made for outdoor environments, which means it is made up of weather and stretch-resistant material like Sunbrella – it is a high-quality outdoor fabric sling commonly found in all outdoor upholstery. 

 

You can find it mostly at the beach, swimming pool and garden. It is huge and larger than an umbrella and usually can cover and shade more than one person at once. In addition, it is not meant to be portable and therefore has no handle at the end; instead, it is used with a parasol stand which is made up of wrought iron for its strong stability and resistance to wind.

Lighting is a course in exterior decoration. When planning the layout and design of your home, you might be better off working from the outside in. The front door and the facade of your home is the first thing that guests will see. This sets the tone of your home and can have a large effect on the way that the exterior transitions into the interior.

Being that the exterior of your home shouldn’t follow a tropical theme while the interior speaks of old-world glory; it’s important to keep in mind that these two areas must complement one another.
